This song is inspired by my Great Grandad who was a fireman in the Coventry Blitz. One day he was late going for his shift because his family convinced him to stay for tea with them. He was late arriving so didn't go out with his crew that night, sadly his crew never came home. This is a song of hope in the darkest of times.
